Introduction to Educational Robotics

The program Introduction to Educational Robotics is designed for students in the upper classes of primary school, where through group work around the construction of a robotic model that interacts with the real world in real time, children live an exciting and entertaining experience that they do not want to end!

Each construction has “artificial intelligence” that is the product of students’ algorithmic thinking and is realized through a digital program, which they easily draw themselves on the touch screen of a tablet wirelessly connected to the robotic structure.

The realization of this whole process involves children in practical, active, teamwork exploratory experimentation (early scientists), helps them conquer learning, knowledge and language skills through questioning, search for motifs, choosing strategies and formulating conclusions.

The knowledge that children acquire in this program may of course be useful to them if they want to participate in the annual Pan-Hellenic Educational Robotics Competition for Primary School students, which is the forerunner of the World Olympics of WRO.

Purpose of the program

The purpose of the program “Introduction to Educational Robotics” is the exciting learning of physics, technology, mathematics and engineering (S.T.E.M.), practically, without theories and unnecessary terminology, and methods of problem analysis and problem solving. At the same time, it is possible to develop skills of ingenuity, algorithmic & programming skills and team spirit demonstration.
